A Political Assessments Can Not be Legally Levied On Government Employes by Any Person, Either Office-holder or Private Citizen. ' Vie President of the bid Dominion Re publican League te be Froseented by the OItII Servloe Commiulon for Soliciting Contributions. Wasuinoton, Oct 29. The determi nation of the Civil Servloe Commission to prosecute the officers olj the pldt Dorajn lon Kepublloaa league for levying a po litical assessment on Federal o Aloe-holders promise to open 'up a number of questions of unusual interest. The al leged offense of whioh the Civil Service Commission has taken cognizance con- Ilsts h the mailing; to Virginia offlpe olders ' iq the departments a circular Which the commission, oonstrue to he in the nature of apolitical assessment The commissioners resolved to make a test case of what they regard as a violation of the law designed to protect Federal office-holders from political assessments. It Is popularly supposed that the law on this point merely precludes an officer of the Government from receiving or solic iting a contribution from another officer or employe, but an examination of the Revised Statutes by the commissioners convinced thorn, they say, that it was an rffitose for anyoitlzen, whether an offlot-holdor or not, to solicit a contribu tion from a Government employe. The penalty is a heavy one three years' im prisonment and $5,000 fine. In the present cases some of the o fl ours of the Old Dominion League are Federal office-holders, while others are private citizens. Civil Service Commis sioner Thompson was seen in regard to the proposed prosecution of the officers of the League. "It will be pushed with .Vigor," said he, "as it is our belief that one conviction will settle the question for good and no one would ever again attempt to collect assessments. The commission has not yet seoured all the evidence it desires, but will have it in a few days." . , ( "What officers of the Government are implicated?" - ''The only one that I now recall is W. 0. El am,, a chief of division of the Inte rior Department ' He is an officer of the association, the first vice president and I am confident that the evidence we have is tu Helen t, Judged by the usual prac tice, to secure conviction." , WKECKKD AT SEA.

Damaging Evidence Against th Cronin Conspirators. ' O'Sullivan, the Ice Man, Put In a Bad Light by Mrs. Couklin. , The Famons Whit Horse Is Again De scribed With Great Accuracy A Disas trous Day for the Defense. Cine AO o, Oct 29. Public Interest In the Cronin trial continues and seems to Intensify as the trial progresses toward the point where the introduction of sensational ovldonce Is probable. . The Jurors yesterday looked refreshed by their Sunday rest and the prisoners wero In a niore ohoerf ul mood than any day since the opening of the trial. John Cronin, the doctor's brother, was the first witness called by the State,, but was not present ' Napier Moreland, Pat Dlnan's hostler, was called. Mr. Moreland testified in response to Mr. Mills' questions, that on the evening of May 4, about aeven o'clock, a man called at Dlnan's stable, . where witness was then working. The man asked It any horse had been hired for him there during theay. '-Witness ; knew nothing: about It 'and told blm' to tee Dlnan.; The stranger left the stable to seek Dinan, whom he found, arid who, a few .moments later, entered in com pany with the stranger and told witness to hitch up a horse. Witness brought out a gray horse, to which the stranger objected, saying be did not want a white horse. The man did not say who hired the horse for htm. Mr. Dinan told wit ness not to send out the horse whioh he was hitching up and ordered him to bring out the "old white horse." Mr. Forrest here objected to the intro duction In evidence of every thing re lating to the man who called for the whit horse and to anything he said or did, Dan Coughlln not being present The court overruled the objection, Mr. Forrest taking an exception. Witness described the man as looking like a tne ohanio. He had a short dark beard of about a week's growth. He wore a round, toft slouch hat and a . faded brown or gray overcoat with th oollar pulled up around bis chin. There were no side . curtains on the buggy and th man asked for them, but did not get them. The stranger's boots were muddy and ttalned. The horse was returned be- , tween nine and 9:30 o'clock. Witness ' then described the condition of the buggy ;. and horse. The buggy was covered with sand and mud and the horse was warm and blowing hard, as though having been driven rapidly for a longdistance. WJien the rig was returned the man did not come into the barn, but jumped from the buggy outside and walked rapidly away. Mrs. Conklin followed Moreland on the stand. She told the now familiar itory of the call of the mysterious stranger who took the physician away in Dlnan's buggy. She also identified the card of O'Sullivan, the ice man, that had been presented by the man; The tatter's eyes, she said, were the most villainous she had ever seen. They had a kind of "don't look at me again" look , about tbem. This description was ruled out upon objection by tbe defense, (con tinuing, she said that when she taxed O'Sullivan with the seeming connection between himself and the physician's dis appearance, he said, that be oeuld not explain it He was very nervous, kept twirling his hat and could not look the witness in the face. During this testi mony O'Sullivan leaned forward and looked Mrs. Conklin straight In the fane, ills oduntenance was alternately pale and flushed, although be occasionally imllod. Mrs. Conklin went on to tay that ahe positively identified Dlnan's white horse as the one driven by the man that called for Dr. Cronin. After Mr. Forrest had failed In the at tempt to bave tbe major portion of this j testimony ttrloken out the witness wai put through a severe cross-examination. She more than held her own, however. PnrrAat. ivimnallMil hnr in describe the horse a half dozen times, with the view 1 of Involving her la contradictions, but her story did not vary a word. In de scribing the peoullar motion of the an imal's knees she placed ber hands on her knees and with her wrists representing the horse's knees, showed tho peculiar twlstlnir motions of its legs. She em phatically dented that she had failed to . Identify the horse when it was brought to her by Captain Schaack, and her evi dence was entirely satisfactory to the jounsel for the State. The cross-examination of Mrs. Conk lin was resumed after the recess for lunch. She emphatically denied that he had told to a reporter of a morning Sapor a story that dlffored in material etails from her evidence given at the morning session. At the request of sounsel O'Sullivan, the ice man, con fronted the witness, and she said, his mustache bad changed in color since she had interrogated him with reference to the physician's disappearance. At that time It was a little reddish in the cen ter, while now it was darker. An effort on tho part of oounsel to confuse O'Sul livan with Mulcabey, one of .hit em ployes, failed. Charles W. Beck, a reporter, testified to having taken out the white horse which was Identified by Frank Scanlan and Mrs, Conklin. Miss Sarah McEnerny and ber slater Agnes, both of whom were in tbe physlolan's ofBo when he was summoned by tbe mysterious stranger, sorroborated the evidence given by Mrs. Conklin. Both sustained their position on cross-examination. 'Workmen Burled Under Debris. Selsia, Ala., Oot' 29.

Tbe balloon tailed away eight or ten miles and came down la a field where some negroes were plowing.
